Does anyone know which OBs in Chicago have the best success rates with External Version? I,m 36 weeks and the baby is now in a breech position. I plan to try some positions on spinning babies and doing acupuncture and the Webster technique with my chiropractor, but if those things fail, I'd like to try ECV.

 

Any recommendations would be appreciated.

Yeah, still breech :(. The version didn't work. I am going to try contacting the two docs I've heard do breech deliveries. Not sure if they will do them on an "untried" pelvis though.

Chiro care? Webster technique to turn a baby works.

 

icpa4kids.com has a search feature and lists out who is webster certified near you.

 

You can always stay home and walk into any ER in labor too.

I have tried chiro care and accupuncture and moxibustion treatments, in addition to some of the things listed on spinningbabies.

 

I checked to see if the chiropractor I,ve been going to is listed on that site, and he's not. Maybe I should go see someone else.
